  1. Share

    A corporation divides its capital into shares, which are offered for sale to raise capital, termed as issuing shares. Thus, a share is an indivisible unit of capital, expressing the contractual relationship between the company and the shareholder. The denominated value of a share is its face value: the total capital of a company is divided into a number of shares. In financial markets, a share is a unit of account for various financial instruments including stocks, and investments in limited partnerships, and real estate investment trusts. The common feature of all these is equity participation. The income received from shares is known as a dividend. A shareholder, also known as a stockholder, is a person who owns shares of a certain company or organization. The process of purchasing and selling shares often involves going through a stockbroker as a middle man.

Examples of SHARE in a Sentence

  1. Ken Paulson:

    If you do something in public, it's fair game for anyone to record it and share it with the world.

  2. Jo Gilchrist:

    My friend did have a staph infection on her face, and I was using her brush just before. I had no idea that could even happen. I used to share with my friends all the time.

  3. Jordan Taylor:

    Kamui Kobayashi, once a Formula 1 driver and member of Taylors winning team last year, was spectacular and the Japanese driver closed the final three hours to beat No. 77 Mazda Team Joest by more than a minute. The Cadillac was the only car on the lead lap for long stretches of the race. Jordan Taylor, who finished fourth in the Le Mans class, couldnt even remember the last time a Wayne Taylor Racing car won a race without a Taylor in the cockpit. Jordan Taylor first guessed 2004, then amended Jordan Taylor answer to 2008. I think since 2013 we went only one year without finishing on the podium, its an incredible team, an incredible victory, a lot of good guys on the team who are like family. Jordan Taylor stoically watched from the Team Penske pits. I couldnt show too much excitement in our pits, Jordan Taylor said. But very happy for my dad and the whole team. They really deserved it, they were dominant. The race had a record 833 laps, breaking the mark of 808 set two seasons ago. Jordan Taylor now has two wins as a driver one when Jordan Taylor drove for Wayne Taylor Racing and four as a team owner. DragonSpeed USA won the Le Mans Prototype 2 class. BMW Team RLL won the Le Mans class for the second consecutive year. Paul Miller Racing won the GT Daytona Beach class, the slowest but stacked division that had 18 entries including the Aim Vasser Sullivan Lexus RC F GT3 with Kyle Busch. Kyle Busch was really good in Kyle Busch first endurance race, but the team had its share of struggles with attrition and was never a contender. Still, Kyle Busch said hed be interested in a return to sports car racing, especially if Toyota or Lexus moves up to the prototype class, because hed like a shot at racing for the overall win. Hopefully there is some things that Toyotas got up their sleeve as to what kind of class they want to participate in and what kind of cars they want to run over here in the next few years, Kyle Busch said. I would certainly be, Scott Dixon know, all hands on deck to put my hands up to get ready to go for a DP overall win. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP New regulations reached for 2022 earlier this weekend would make IMSAs prototype class eligible for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, another race Busch could potentially elbow into in the future. Toyota Racing Development President David Wilson said the manufacturer has no current plans to move up in class with Lexus or enter prototypes with Toyota. We are very happy racing in the GTD Series and we intend to continue as we still have races and championships to win, Development President David Wilson said. We would not rule it out in the future, but at the present time we have no plans to participate. Kyle Busch was highly praised by Kyle Busch teammates, as well as team co-owner Jimmy Vasser, who said not one person in the organization had an issue with the temperamental driver. Kyle Busch impressed. I am not sure why we should be impressed. Hes a NASCAR champion. Hes won more NASCAR races in the modern day than anybody, but it takes a lot of confidence and guts to jump into a discipline that hed never really done before and he did it with ease.

  4. Ingo Hofmaier:

    Glencore's exit was clearly a no confidence vote on the sector but foremost on a company that is disadvantaged versus the other big players, the situation is critical. Raising capital now will put pressure on the share price and as the highest-cost of the big producers, Lonmin is the first to feel the pain and the need to restructure.

  5. Marcel Dinger:

    They have the lion's share by a long way in the market when it comes to genome sequencing. BGI have a fairly equivalent technology now ... They are really a competitor in the market with real potential to disrupt.
